These shows were on a soccer field - 2 shows in the afternoon each day. Hot so the trip had to be cooled with water. Dusty parking lot. Garcia hip the crew in attendance.
If you find these shows 'mellow' it's because they were in the afternoon outside.
@Famous KC Amos - So Sad, I knew Brian McCartie as well - great key board player. He passed on september 1990 in the mountains - great person, I loved his energy.

Even the purest of romantics..
This is nice.
A good set list played with some punch
Reviews are worth a read.
If you saw shows during this time period
you know they were picking up speed.
Brent stepping up
at times driving the band furthur by sheer willpower
but the leader of the band goes for TERRAPIN
and off we go..

"No blatant behavior please"
In the parking lot prior to the show starting we were handed a flyer asking us not to be blatant. When some 20 somethings shooting beer from a keg in the back of their pick up got the flyer they turned to my pal and I and asked, What does blatant mean? I responded, "That's like when you run up to a mounted police officer and throw a full beer bottle at his head." They nodded, and put a blanket over the keg. It was a tad warm.

Man this was a good show...but man....I had got a hit of acid of this one guy my friends new....Holy Fuck!!! It was the strongest I had ever had up till then. I was not prepared for the heat and the high to be so intense. I went with a group from P.V. High all good friends. I think they were worried about me the entire time. None the less they made sure I didn't get too far gone. I was never "that GUY". We had a great time and after the show drove to Torrance Beach and went for a cool down. I only tripped a couple of times after that. I just decided to give it up I still have awesome flashbacks...when I hear one of the tunes played that day....it takes me back to that day. And I smile....ahhh youth.

best blow aways
the one from the built to last outtakes
dozin at the knick
Also one of the best Foolish Heart, The Weight, and basically the entire second set is just a classic.
As an east coast kid seeing shows around that time period, I never made it out west (until 1998 and I have lived in the west ever since)
this was always one I wish I had gone to.
this show has always been one of my very favorites ever since i had a good board copy on cassette many years ago.

Same review Day 2
I was only 19 years old when I went to this my first and only dead show. I was also able to go both days, but I consider it to be one show all together. I am thankful that I was able to make it to see a live show. About a year prior to going when I was 18, dead fever had hit my small little town in Inland SoCal. A lot of us were loving the sixties stuff, and I crossed paths and made friends with a true deadhead that had lived in San Franciso, had seen many shows, and his parents were friends with Timothy Leary. He was actually like no one I had met, or have ever met since, and when I read about how special and unique Neal Cassady was I think of my friend. He was for me, like Cassady was to the band. I listened to every tape that I could get my hands on of the dead. Even before I went to a live show I fell in love with the music, and thought it was magical, timeless, and transcendent. It felt like even if I was listening to a song for the first time, I was like, "Oh yeah, everbody knows this song! I love this song!" but I had never heard it before. That is about as good as I can describe it in words. I had no idea that the dead were even in town the day that I went to this show. I had just got off work. My Cassady had already rambled on, but I made friends with another head that I worked with. We both worked the same shift(graveyard), and we were going to get in our cars and go home and go to sleep which was the routine at the time. Before we got to our cars a couple of his freinds that I kind of knew a little bit pulled up and asked him and I if we wanted to go the show, and they had extra tickets for us. Next thing I know were on our way the show. The rest was like a vivid dream. I could write a small book about it from the time we got there to the time we left, but to sum it up I was extremely satisfied with the band, the fans, and the whole thing. All my expectations were met if not exceeded. I smelled, touched, tasted, heard, and saw things that I never had the pleasure of experiencing before. They played all the songs that I really wanted to hear them play live, and the stuff I did not know at the time was just as good. The only thing that I was not happy about at the time, was my own performance, so to speak. I was not at my best, and going through a very depressing and frustrating time back in my regular day to day mud life. I was trying really hard to reach higher and be free of my junk, but I just could not quite get the gold ring. I wish I would have been 100 percent on but it just did not go down that way, everything else though was top notch. I did not know that Terrence Mckenna, and Timothy Leary were there, but now that I do it makes it all the more special to me that I was there too. I have been recently resting, reflecting, and taking a trip down memory lane. That is why I am here writing this review, and It makes me happy and excited about the future and dizzy with possibilities.

Whoever complained that it's not a stereo mix is wrong. This show was 'done' by David Gans for the Dead Hour. Excellent sound.
Anyone who wants to know how to DL this and other SBDs, just throw me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).

My First and only Dead show!
I was 22 years old and a senior at Whittier College and I don't recall who got the tickets, but when I heard there was some extras available I knew it was a wonderful opportunity to finally see the dead.
My self and I'm remembering about 6 others. Split sown the middle guys and girls, packed up into a late model American Station Wagon and headed South to Carsom. We had already shared a couple of joints and were prepped with good and drinks on a super hot day ready for fun. The weed was already in full effect when we reached the gate leading to a giant flat green piece of land with the stage in the center. To my left upon entrance we were fortunately greeted by a shaman white figure in white garb who offered us small white tabs of paper with a helicopter graphic on it. OH BOY! FREE ACID!!! We agreed to accept this generous offer on the condition we would all stay together and hold hands and not lose sight of eac hother. Miraculously we followed this principal and felt secure as the acid took effect. My favorite moment of the show was their version of the weight. I noticed by this time of the show that my face was sore from the permanent smile on my face that was imprinted by the all powerful sun behind the stage, but with some relief by the water cannons on each sides of the stage cooling us down with water and creating beautiful rainbows as the shudders of ecstasy filled my body as the whole crowd tried to sing along with the band "AND ...AND...AND...YOU PUT THE THE LOAD (put the load) RIGHT ON ME!!!" and a unified yelp and whoosh of sighs and screams and whoops for the effort to hit those melodic highs took their emotional toll. I looked around. Grandparents and babies in tie-dye's together and I knew there was no place I wanted to be then that very moment.
This was a great show on a really hot afternoon but I was always angry at Jerry for cutting off Brent during Blow Away. The previous version of that song was at the Knick and Brent had a great rap that was well received and eventually made it to the live album. But at this show, when Brent yells out a "hold it" to start his rap, Jerry totally cuts him off and starts Terrapin. Blow Away was only played twice more and each without an ending rap. I don't know if this added to Brent feeling like he wasn't an equal in the band. He did have a lot more songs in the setlists during his last year and they all were great. He did a great Easy To Love You in the first set of this show.

someone took a good board and made a mono piece of something here. If someone could get a decent board up it would be appreciated. The first night is also mono.

Monster Stranger, then so much more
It felt historic @ the second set at this show, weather extremes, very high crowd, band so strong 89-90 and this was a good one. Other One Phil, Foolish Heart, the Weight was epic. And check out "indian boy" line in Aiko, I remember dancing when that hit, that was so on. You can hear it here. Go GD!!! Damned good times.

Great show to attend
I had been seeing the dead since I was 13. Now at the ripe age of 20 this felt like a reunion with old friends, very nostalgic.
It would be the last time dancing with my 'Spirit Warrior Brother' Brian McCartie who was on to Hawaii not long after the show to catch Jerry Band, and than to the hills of Montana where he loved hiking so much he splipped on to the other side. This show is truly a gem of memories.
It was like, there is not gonna be anymore Ventura County fairgrounds. So lets do it in the LA sunshine one last time, for good old sake. This show reminds me why I had been listening since I was 13 years old.
Everytime the Gratefull Dead would play we would discover what it all might be about. This day, they were just a damn good rock band, make plenty of 'bones' about it!
Only gave it a 4, cause that is my favorite number....

OK, it was freakin HOT that weekend. Miserable.
But the show was great. They seemed to be having some sound trouble on Saturday, at least the satellite stacks were cutting out.
This version of Blow Away made me truly understand what Brent really meant with this song. Incredible lyrics.

Two solid shows
These were my first West coast shows. The first night had an 11 song 1st set. Brent keys and Phils bass going off. The sound on 5-5-90 is a better soundboard this is a little flat.
July 26, 2006 Subject:
Check out the Other 1 from MSG 9/18/88...pretty crazy as well here...plus there some laser guns going off as well...must've been wild to have been there...
There similiar voice distorations abound, not just with the Other 1...check out Desolation Row from 7/19/90...I think Healy or whom ever was mixing at the time was behind all this...
The second set of this Cal State show was one my first tapes...The Foolish Heart is beautiful as is the Standing on the Moon...good quality for a field...

I started the clap
These 2 shows were really fun. Flat lawn and I was about halfway back, but being 6'6", I had no problem seeing the stage. One of the best Foolish Hearts I saw, and if you hear a clapping rhythm from the audience on some AUD tapes, that was started by me. My personal 15 minutes of fame. It was pretty hot though, but so were the boys. Cheers.

I was at these two shows. Temp on Fri was mid 80's. Sat./ Sun. temp jump to 105 & 108 degrees.
Blisters on my scalp for a week. Only thing hotter than the weather were these shows.
The Other One must have caught Brent Dozin'. He came on late and only after the boys slam/stomped

So hot it was cool.

It was hot
Waiting too get into the venue it was a long wait and hot as shit ouy must have been 90 and once they opened the gates what a run it had too be at least a quater of a mile too the stage and people who were not in shape it was no problem too get up front what a show Brent was on fire Easy to love blow away hot hot foolish heart hot This was such a fun two days the boys were so on and fun Me Trap Teri it was a great time Boy We Sure missed Brent HE was grate
This version of foolish heart is very nice. Top 3. You can hear in it bits of Jerry's other songs like bertha, franklins tower, and scarlet begonias. Great lyrics, and open ended. I wish he had time to devolop it more.
The sound is flat. Wish they had a better SBD.

Terence & Tim
Hey These two shows were some of my favorite from the Brent years. The one memory I have of these shows was seeing Terence McKenna & Tim Leary standing off to the side near the stage chatting & walking by them with my camera & forgetting to take a picture....
The song selection on these is excellent & I thought they played exceptionally well. It was hot & fun. KPFK was broadcasting it live & I think Healy was too. I like the sound on these. I have both audience & FM masters from these shows that sound about the same.

Long long crazy afternoon....
I have these on tape and they sound better but still flat. I think these shows came out of the board this way with exception of great audience tapes I think this is what we have for the Carson 90'run.
3 for qual. 4 for show.

maybe true but glad to have this one
Until the better one shows up and who does have access to the vault? I got the impression Charlie Miller does, but who else? or how do we get to the people who have the best versions shows?

I have an analog source from this show that sounds better than this. there must be a better digital copy, somewhere. I would transfer but my naks are down at the moment...anyway, a strong show but hindered by the generational loss present
